The Samsung Galaxy Fold is arguably one of the most innovative phones in the past decade. It was the first publicly available mass-market foldable phone and was easily my favorite phone.

The Samsung Galaxy A71s 5G UW may launch on Verizon with support for the carrier’s Ultrawide Band network

Flagship smartphones have become really expensive this year, with many at or beyond the $1,000 mark.
